Giampaolo all-clear for Milan

Marco Giampaolo is increasingly likely to be the new Milan Coach, with Gennaro Gattuso possibly replacing him at Sampdoria.

Simone Inzaghi had been the other main contender for the Rossoneri job, but there are multiple reports from Sky Sport Italia, La Gazzetta dello Sport, La Repubblica and others that he has decided to extend his contract with Lazio.

That would rule Inzaghi out of the running for Milan and Juventus, reducing the Rossoneri options to Giampaolo – reportedly backed by director Paolo Maldini – and Sassuolo Coach Roberto De Zerbi.

There could be something of an exchange, as Gattuso left Milan this week and is a prime contender to replace Giampaolo at Sampdoria.

He had also been linked with Lazio until the decision to give Inzaghi an improved deal.
